This week's spotlight challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is about Silhouettes another new challenge for me, I've never used a silhouette image before but I'm pleased with how this has turned out.

I used the digi stamp watching you by Stitchy of Stitchy Bear Stamps and printed it onto white cardstock - my printer has been playing up recently and any tone on an image is printing out green (?!) in this case it works quite well although other times it can be a bit of a nuisance! I used distress ink to colour my cardstock and sprayed some Dylusions ink to give the splattered fairydust effect. I added Stickles for sparkle on the wings, and made the flowers with lengths of twisted gold net, adding a light spray of the ink and finishing them off with dew drops to the centers. The sentiment is by Hero Arts.
